Ayurveda, Secrets of healing is a seminal work, the basis of which is deeply rooted in the scriptural knowledge behind Ayurveda. Maya Tiwari demonstrates in meticulous detail the power of our own nature-based memories as the primal force of human healing. She introduces the ancient secrets of sadhanas, i.e. spiritual practices, therapies, remedies, diet and natural biorhythms--which, when applied, awaken the cognitive memories necessary to achieve our deepest personal healing. Secrets of Healing is the most complete offering of the original cleansing and rejuvenative therapies, Pancha Karma, first taught and practiced by the ancient Vedic seers. In this definitive work, Maya Tiwari is the first author to reveal these sophisticated and timeless healing processes in a way which is both comprehensive and readily adaptable to modern western culture.
